I will not be advocating buying out Richards, but the logic here doesn't make sense. A UFA isn't going to be TOO upset about him being bought out, since it's a way to cash in on a huge "retirement" contract and still sign a new one with a new team. I sincerely doubt that would deter any future signings.

Don't perform to your contract? Cash in early on it. How is that a bad thing?
